Hockey Coverage in the US is really no different than Baseball and Basketball coverage here, the only diffrence is that ESPN(Cable) gets do some of the big regular season games for those sports, while OLN(A channel i dont have) gets the Marquee and playoff games.

regional coverage for all hockey teams in New York is again no different than the Yankees I can watch every Devil, Islander and Ranger game.

Why not give the game a gift by having necessary combinations of wins/losses tonight so that the Leafs and Habs can play a highly meaningful season finale on Saturday. Sky is the limit for TV ratings (+ fan interest) for such a showdown.
Looks like you got what you want, Rangers in the playoffs yeahhhhh boy.

I actually focused on the interest of people in the US i.e. fan attendance in games and the overall popularity of the sport... should've used better words.

Not quite The Leafs again found a way to make things hard for themselves. They no longer control their own destiny. Montreal needs a single point to get in, Islanders have to win both to get in (Philly n the disinterested Devils being their opponents), and the Leafs will have to win in regulation and hope for some help from NewJersey and Philadelphia. Geez.

But yes, Saturday night's Leafs-Habs matchup will be the closest thing to an intense playoff series between the two teams in quite some time.

Today's Must :

What : New York Islanders vs New Jersey Devils
Time : 3.30 ET
Place : Infront of any channel that shows Islanders/Devils hockey
Why : Last undecided playoff series to be decided. A Devils win sends the Leafs in the playoffs, who overcame Montreal last nite 6-5 in a riveting contest, one that was emotionally drained and by far the best possible regular season finale. Islanders can jump over the Leafs, and they need to beat Brodeur n Co. to accomplish that.

Sorry Islanders fans, not sure if there are any here, but please dont win. Heck, some of the Leafs have even gone to the church on Easter Sunday to pray for a favorable result.

Islanders grabbed a 2-0 lead on New Jersey, who were well content to sit out their record-setting goalie. But the Devils, playing their last regular season game in Continental Airlines Arena, somehow staged one heck of a comeback, tying the game up with less then a second remaining in regulation time. Quite sadly, the Isles came on top in the shootout.

Awful way to decide a playoff matchup this shootout is. The prayer of the Leafs didnt work

yes Noc, your dream has come true. But I am afraid that the 2nd part isnt about to happen anytime soon. Today should be the last gameday of this season for NHL. Anaheim leads Ottawa 3-1, and the Senators are all but cooked. Honda Center will rock when...

The Ducks will win! GO DUCKS!

Two years in a row undefeated in playoffs at home. They can't be that lucky, can they?

After the first period with a 2-0 margin and lifeless hockey display from the senetors I stopped watching.

Its all about King James and Dunkin donuts now.

Lucky? If by lucky you mean they are lucky to have such a talented bunch of young forwards, veterans Selanne, Pronger, Niedermayer brothers and a superb coach in Carlyle, yes, they are pretty darn lucky. Even though they didn't win the President's trophy, they have been by far the most dominating and intimidating team in all of NHL. They don't get the credits or the press coverage they deserve by virtue of being a west coast team.

Devils? Well, they could only ride on Brodeur for so long. Brian Murray did a fantastic job of cracking their Neutral Zone Trap style of play. They were thoroughly outclassed by Ottawa. In fact, the final match-up was perfect. Clearly the two best teams were playing each other. It's just a shame only the likes of Alfredsson decided to show up in the final battle of the season. The rest of the team was practically asleep. By the way, what Alfredsson did to Niedermayer was disgraceful. It was a tied game at 2-2 and that incident sparked a great Ducks comeback. It's a totally classless gesture from a guy who has otherwise had the playoff season of a lifetime. I lost all respect I had for the guy (not that I had a lot to begin with for the Senators. They're known for their dirty play.)

Well said and summarised, CB! You are bang on about the Ducks and the Senators. Perfect matchup, but its a shame that a team like the Senators, who can be so lethal potentially, still cant do without some of their cheap brand of hockey. Alfredsson, Chris Neil n Co. should have a good summer pondering what could've been for their franchise, had they shown a bit more class.


Envy the Anaheim Ducks... that's the sort of team composition needed these days to raise the Champions banner. From Giggy to Corey Perry to Carlisle to Burke, they all delivered from Game 1 regular season to finishing off the Sens in a rather short Cup final series.

that's exactly what i meant. no one can possibly win the cup on luck alone, which is why it's the most difficult trophy to win. approriate, in my view, because hockey is the greatest game there is. thanks for the vid.

God i miss hockey now that i'm living in dhaka.
